After Break-In Repair
As upset as you may be after a break-in, you will likely be more upset when your carpenter gives you the bill for repairing the door and door jamb that has been kicked-in. It can cost up to $500.00 or more to repair a damaged door jamb. The reason is that the traditional way of repairing a damaged door jamb is extremely labor intensive and time consuming. Armor Concepts realized that once a home or business has become a target for invasion, it will continue to be targeted. Obviously, a $500 repair fee each time someone breaks in, even if it is only a couple times, can become a great cost. Typically, carpenters do not reinforce the door jamb when they do their repairs - they generally restore them to their original condition. Reinforcing your door jamb and hinges is the only way to guarantee preventing your home or business from becoming an ongoing target.
It is no longer necessary to pay a carpenter to repair a door jamb that has been damaged. Even if you have minimal handy skills, Armor Concepts makes it easy to install our FIX-A-JAMB or EZ Armor solutions for as little as $39.00. In either case, the repair is going to look nice and your door jamb will be stronger than it was before.
If you are repairing your door jamb because your teenager kicked in the door, then you may not be concerned about a repeat offense. However, if you have been burglarized, you need to make sure that the thieves will not be able to kick in your door again. Homes that have been burglarized are 4 times more likely to be burglarized again because thieves know what you have. They also know that you have insurance and will replace what they stole the first time.

A home that has been broken into is more than 4 times more likely to be broken into again. If you don't secure your home or your doors after a break-in, odds are that your house or business will be targeted again.
There are two calls that nearly all burglary victims make after they have had a break-in. The first is to a locksmith or carpenter to fix their door and install a better lock system. The second is to an alarm company. Why? Because they have been told that this is how to secure their home.
While a standard alarm system is an added deterrent, a thief that has broken into your house already knows what you have. They also know that you are likely to replace the stolen materials with new ones. They will kick-in the same door (with the new lock) or may try another door, which is also not likely to be reinforced. They will be in and out in 5 minutes and your alarm company will call you at work to come home and fill out another police report.
